Sion Fruit Salad

Hi everyone!  I hope you all had a great week-end with your love ones, I did, but I'm ever so glad to sit yesterday and not do a darn thing too!  Landscaping is hard, hot, dirty work!  But we got it done and the outside of her house looks just a cute as the inside now.  Below are some of things we planted in her yard.  

As you all know I rode the train down on Friday morning, so I told my daughter to leave some things, cooking wise, for me to do.  So when I got there, I made some deviled eggs, cupcakes and Sion Fruit Salad.  Now when my daughters were in high school (school name was Notre Dame de Sion, hence the name), I was on the cookbook committee for salads.  We had to make each recipe and rate them so they could decided if they wanted them to be in the cookbook.  Well this is a recipe I tried and the kids just fell in love with it and when we had an open house for one of the girls when they graduated from high school, I served this recipe and again the kids went crazy for it, so when I made recipe books for my daughters to take with them when they left home, I made sure and included this recipe.  Everyone at the Pampered Chef party liked it too, oh and my daughter had a wonderful turn out and did very well with her party too!!

Sorry I don't have step-by-step pictures, but I don't think you will really need any either, it's that simple!

Sion Fruit Salad

1 -21 ounce can peach pie filling, dump it all in
1- 20 ounce can pineapple chunks, drained
1- 16 ounce box frozen sliced strawberries, thawed
3 large bananas, sliced

Mix all together in a bowl to hold mixture.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.  Now sometimes I will cut the peach slices in half and my daughter likes to add a large can of drained Mandarin oranges to her salad.

That's it, how simple and easy to make and so yummy too eat too!  It's a perfect salad for the upcoming party's that happen at this time of the year too because you can make it the night before.  The bananas will stay nice looking for at least two days too.

Well I hope you try this simple recipe too, you won't be disappointed either!   Mary

Ninja Blender Cover

Hi everyone, I hope your week is off to a great start, it's nice and sunny here today, maybe Spring is here to stay!

I'm sharing with you today the blender cover that I made to cover my daughters' blender with.  I used the same material that I used to make her mixer cover with.  Now her small appliances will stay nice and clean while out on the countertops.  I have no pattern to send you too, I had to make my own.  I did take some packing paper and did a rough measurement and sewed it together, slipped it over the blender and adjusted the size before I cut out my strips of material.  Then I cut out muslin and quilt batting and sewed all three layers together, zig-zag the raw edges and sew it all together.  She is very pleased with how it came out too!  I'm going to her house this week-end and will give it to her then.  She is also having her first Pampered Chef party, if any of you need any PC items you can order them from her website HERE.

Well off to make a birthday card, hope you have a great day tomorrow!  Mary
